New Delhi: In a special episode Saturday, Bigg Boss 8 got its five finalists who will now compete with five challengers from previous seasons.
Curtains were down for Puneet Issar and Sonali Raut, who were voted out of the show.
Contestants Karishma Tanna, Gautam Gulati, Pritam Singh, Ali Quli Mirza and Dimpy Ganguli will now go ahead to be part of Bigg Boss Halla Bol, a special game that will stretch the controversial reality show by a month.
Rahul Mahajan, Ajaz Khan, Mehek Chahal, Sana Khan and Sambhavna Seth are the challengers who will throw a challenge to them.
Puneet, who bade adieu Saturday, had an eventful journey. From being the oldest person in the house to being someone who was seen as one of the bitchiest one, the ex-Mahabharata actor had many tags.
While his affection for Gautam was one of the major talking points throughout the show, his impulsive behaviour touched a few raw nerves.
On the other hand, Sonali, another contestant to go out, remained in news mainly for her ‘special friends’. The Xpose actor often claimed that there were two spirits in the house who kept her company and advised her when she was in need.
Recently, she had told Pritam that the spirits promised to keep her on the show up to the last leg.
Saturday’s episode was a special one as it was host Salman Khan’s last appearance on the show this season. Farah Khan takes over as the host Sunday.
The special episode, titled ‘Finale Ka Twist’, featured Jacqueline Fernandes and Arjun Rampal, who came to the show to promote their upcoming movie, Roy.
Upen Patel, Minnisha Lamba, Diandra Soares, Puneet Bhat and Aarya Babbar also performed alongside Salman Khan to welcome the new host, Farah.
